Pat Metheny: The Orchestrion Project


"The Orchestrion Project" was filmed at the former St Elias Church in Greenpoint, Brooklyn in November 2010. It features Pat Metheny on guitar performing with the Orchestrion, a vast collection of mechanical instruments that surround Pat Metheny in this atmospheric setting. The focus of the performance is the "Orchestrion Suite", a work written specifically for this combination and debuted on Pat Metheny's "Orchestrion" album released earlier in 2010. Added to this are other tracks from across Metheny's prolific career going right back to "Unity Village" from his debut solo album "Bright Size Life" in 1976 and including other tracks from the seventies, eighties and nineties. This is a unique collaboration between a master guitarist and the pinnacle of mechanical music.

Danny Gill: Learn To Play Classic Acoustic Tracks

New Danny Gill Release From LickLibrary - Learn To Play Classic Acoustic Tracks

Fresh from the LickLibrary Studios is a new double DVD set, Learn To Play Classic Acoustic Tracks. Popular tutor, Danny Gill, takes you note for note through five classic tracks with over three hours of guitar lessons that help you explore the theories and techniques of the finger picking style of playing.

Learn to Play Classic Acoustic Tracks (RRP £24.99) features the slow melodic Dust In The Wind, written by Kerry Livgren of Kansas as a finger exercise to learn finger picking. There is also the easy beginner song Father and Son by Cat Stevens, which has a nice folk feel to it and Led Zeppelin’s cover of Babe I’m Gonna Leave You, the ideal track to jam to. Then looking at capoed playing Danny walks you through Here Comes the Sun by George Harrison of The Beatles and Landslide by Stevie Nicks of Fleetwood Mac. Both of which contain interesting picking patterns.

In these guitar lessons from LickLibrary, Danny Gill shares with you a number of tips and techniques that will help you improve your right hand technique. He also demonstrates a few tricks that you can use when playing an acoustic guitar rather than an electric one. You can easily watch how the fingers of Danny’s right hand move independently, playing non adjacent strings, whilst you can also see what his left hand is doing and where the fret is capoed with the split screen production of the video.

You can find Learn To Play Classic Acoustic Tracks at LickLibrary along with the related Perfect Partner Sets, which includes the jamtrax for these guitar lessons.

I was recently approached by Csaba Zvekan and the Raven Lord guys about the possibility of joining the ranks. Needless to say after hearing Csaba’s voice as well as the the sound of the band I was sold. I’ve been at this a very long time and I know quality metal when I hear it.

Black Country Communion, the Anglo-American rock group featuring Joe Bonamassa (guitar, vocals), Glenn Hughes (vocals, bass), Jason Bonham (drums), and Derek Sherinian (keyboards), today announced that their only UK concert at the Wolverhampton Civic on Saturday January 5th has been cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances.

Planet Rock Radio launched a 48-hour ticket pre-sale on Wednesday 19th September. Customers who purchased tickets will receive a full refund, however if you have any queries, please email

The one-off concert was originally intended to be Black Country Communion’s only UK appearance in 2013. The band chose Wolverhampton due to their geographical and spiritual ties to the area (Glenn Hughes was born in Cannock, Jason Bonham was born in Dudley).

In 2011, Black Country Communion’s last studio album, “2”, scored the No.1 spot in the Official UK Rock Album Chart. The band’s upcoming third album Afterglow, produced by Kevin Shirley, will be released in the UK by Mascot Records on Monday October 29th.

Awards will be presented to seven distinguished honorees for their contributions to spreading awareness of Fund's important work.

A privately funded 501C3 charity organization dedicated to cancer prevention, research and education, the Ronnie James Dio Stand Up and Shout Cancer Fund has already raised more than $500,000 in its short history. Monies raised have been committed to the cancer research work of the T. J. Martell Foundation for Cancer, AIDS and Leukemia Research and the gastric cancer research unit of the M.D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, where Ronnie was treated for gastric cancer during the last six months of his life, according to Wendy Dio, widow of the late singer and Fund President/Founder.

The Halloween Spooktacular at the Avalon will include gourmet food stations and a hosted bar, a silent auction, live auction, an all-star rock 'n roll jam featuring Dio Disciples and a performance by the weirdly wonderful performance troupe Cirque Berserk. VIP ticket levels will also be available.

Awards named after songs written by Ronnie James Dio will be presented to the following distinguished honorees:

* Man on the Silver Mountain Award: Neil Warnock, Founder and CEO of The Agency Group worldwide

* Rainbow in the Dark Award: Stanley J. Diamond, partner, Diamond & Wilson, and member of the Board of Directors of the Ronnie James Dio Stand Up & Shout Cancer Fund;

Eddie Trunk of VH1 Classic's "That Metal Show," who was presented with the Fund's Long Live Rock 'n Roll Award at last year's Gala, will once again serve as Special Guest emcee.

"We are really looking forward to our 2nd Annual Awards Gala," says Dio Cancer Fund chairman Gloria Butler. "It will have quite a different feel from last year's inaugural extravaganza at the Playboy Mansion, this year replaced with Ghosts & Goblins on Halloween night at Avalon, an all-star jam, the amazing Cirque Berzerk, the fortune tellers, strolling magicians and free flowing delicacies. It's sure to be a 'spooktacular' night for a special cause."

Fund founder and president Wendy Dio adds: "The support the Dio Cancer Fund has received since its beginnings shortly after Ronnie's death has been overwhelming. Our mandate is cancer prevention, research and education, and we are proud and gratified to be able to recognize this year's honorees for their contributions toward spreading the word about our mission. Ronnie would have been so proud of what we have accomplished so far, and he would especially have loved to party on Halloween."
